"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

He is 16. He is basically doing 11th/12th grade simultaneously this year. He's been working really hard to complete 4 years of high school in 3 years. That is one of the joys of homeschooling--being able to do that. So if his list looks LONG....that is why!

Bible--Switched on Schoolhouse: 12th grade Christian Faith and Living, Vision Forum's "Defending the Christian Worldview", the book "In His Steps"

Algebra--Teaching Textbooks (math is not his strong suit, and we are not making a big deal about it. The line of work he is going into does not require high levels of math.)

Language Arts--online writing classes through Time4writing.com. He'll take Essay Writing, and then Essay Writing for the SAT. Wordly Wise 11 and 12 for Vocabulary.

History/Literature--Truthquest History Age of Revolution III

American Government (1st semester)--Alpha Omega Lifepacs
